The Winter Combat Uniform was developed in 1941 for issue to crews of armored vehicles. The uniform consisted of a cloth helmet, a jacket and overalls. All three garments were made from olive drab #3 cotton twill and lined with brown kersey wool.
Although these garments were designed for armored vehicle crews, troops in all branches of the service endeavored to acquire them. Europe was cold and wet, and this uniform was far superior to the fair-weather M41 Field Jacket. The jackets were particularly popular and many were obtained by by infantrymen, artillerymen and paratroopers.
